Original Right Hand Drive

One of just 1,583 Right-Hand drive Series 1 4.2 Coupes built

The finest, most meticulously restored Series 1 Jaguar E-Type. Numbers matching, one of just 1,583 Right-Hand Drive 4.2L coupes built.It was bought by a U.S. Army Sergeant new in Germany and then wrecked in 1968. It was the last time the car was driven which leads us to believe the 24,555 miles indicated on the odometer was in fact original making it one of the most original, best preserved examples anywhere.
